I think its safe to say that the bomber jacket is the trend of the year 2016. First worn by military pilots during the early 1900s and styled in various ways by different subculture groups throughout the century, the jacket ultimately soared to popularity during the ‘90s. Now we have seen a huge resurgence of this timeless piece with it being worn by countless celebrities, shown in nearly every recent ready-to-wear show, and draped on the backs of all the stylish kids out there.

One of those stylish kids is our fabulous model pictured wearing a baby pink bomber jacket. Pastel colors are perfect for the season and the lightweight material of this particular jacket also adds to its summertime appeal. The industrial and bulky cut of the jacket juxtaposed with its soft color is another aesthetically intriguing moment.

Another plus point to the bomber is its versatility. Trade out this pastel for a jewel-toned color and switch the shorts to skinny jeans and you have an easy nighttime outfit. Change it all up with a printed satin jacket and chunky platform heels and you’ll have an instant runway-quality look. Our model definitely styled himself for day by adding the perfect pair of slim shorts and casual sneakers with crew socks. Any combination of shorts and long socks is a killer way to make your legs appear longer and more luscious!

For accessories he went with a hat and sunglasses that are trendy but also super practical at the same time. The Huf cap is another popular piece that works to build up on the sporty elements of the outfit. Aviators are a perfect finishing touch because they play upon the history of the jacket and truly tie the whole look together.
